Help with a name?

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by McCord6, Oct 1, 2009.

  1. Don't got a picture yet but when hubby gets home, I will surtainly get a picture (I need his cell phone)

    Anyways, There is one chick that I am LOVING! She is the most amazing entertainer EVER! She loves to jump and "fly" and all that! I will put my hand in the cage and she will jump right into it (not walk up but JUMP from point A to point B) and when I raise my hand up a few (with her still on it) she will "FLY" right off and land on another chick! It's the CUTEST thing I have ever seen!

    She is tan in color with light spots on her back. She is almost 1 week old now.

    Anyone can think of a name for her? I want to name after some kind of Olympic Gold Medalist or someone famouse with the same "behavior"

    Any ideas?

    The Olympic gymnast I can think of that your pullet reminds me of is Marilou Retton. Since she likes to "fly" you could always go with Amelia...Earhardt=D
  3. Good IDEA! Amelia is a good name.

    LoLo Jones -- Olympic Track star, amazing athlete that fell at the last Olympics and got back up to finish despite the pain. She's a great role model, she jumps like you describe, and WOW, she's from Iowa too.
    And "LoLo" is such a cool "chick" name.
  5. We made a DECISION! Hubby and I talked about it and decided to name her Lola, after Lolo Jones. Since hubby has a sister named Lolo, we decided to change the O to an A.
